Say Goodbye To Your iGoogle Page

As the spring cleaning at Google continues into the summer, we find ourselves asking what next? Well check you iGoogle page if you have not done so already and you find a notice at the top saying that from the 1st November, iGoogle will be going into shut down mode, check out the reasons why below! 

In a posting by Matt Eichner, General Manager, Global Enterprise Search on the Official Google blog, he said;

On November 1, 2013, iGoogle will be retired. We originally launched iGoogle in 2005 before anyone could fully imagine the ways that today’s web and mobile apps would put personalized, real-time information at your fingertips. With modern apps that run on platforms like Chrome and Android, the need for iGoogle has eroded over time, so we’ll be winding it down. Users will have 16 months to adjust or export their data.
